The latest brand to join the global war against COVID-19 is Arc'teryx. Creators of some of the toughest jackets around, the Canadian company has transformed its Arc'One production facility in British Columbia into one that makes medical gowns.

Their reusable medical gown was developed alongside healthcare professionals in the community who urgently needed them. So far the company has managed to create 500 Level 3 certified gowns with another 30,000 units expected.

Arc'teryx and its partners Mustang Survival and Boardroom Clothing expect to manufacture 90,000 gowns in total and have a website where you can help. Check out what other fashion brands are doing to help flatten the curve.
